troops to general washington. there is no doubt this was a massive setback for the british war effort. but the fact remains that even surrendering 7000 troops to washington, the british still and tens of thousands of more troops in north america and they could have somebody tens of thousands of more troops from other parts of the empir empiref they had decided to do so. but they were not able to do so because of the power of a new force in insurgent warfare, a term that was only going to faithfully in 1776, the power of public opinion. now, if the founding fathers had been battling the roman empire i can assure you that the romans, no matter how many battlefield defeats they would've suffered, would have come back and george washington, the founders, would have been crucified quite literally. the fact that this did not happen is because of what happened in an institution that the roamers did not have to worry about, at least not after the rise of the empire. and that was the house of commons, parliament. in 1782, a year, in the year after the battle of yorktown it was a very close vot
of another march on washington or at least a commemoration of it. >> well, he might need to deliver some of the same speech that never got heard. dr. king's introduction was in a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. when the architects of the republic wrote magnificent words of the constitution and declaration of independence, they were signing a promissory note to every american which every prey american would fall heir. and if you look at the constitution as a promissory note for the fulfillment of the unaable rights of all human beings, everything you talk about is the human race. and i think this was never a black march. this was the march and the dream was a dream that made a southern movement a national movement and an international human rights movement all at once. it probably changed from civil rights to human rights. and it included all of the other factions. women were not mentioned in the constitution. gay and lesbian folk were not mentioned in the constitution. all of the immigrant issue was -- well, everybody was an immigrant when the constitution was w
